Early in his career, around 1597, Pory became an associate and protégé of the geographer and author Richard Hakluyt. It was at Hakluyt's urging that Pory engaged in his first literary effort, a translation of a geographic work by Leo Africanus that was published as A Geographical Historie of Africa (1600). Pory also produced significant documents about the Jamestown colony in Virginia and the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts.
